It has been reported that both adults and children were in the minivan which was heading to Koh Sirey from the Laguna Phuket area.

Srisoonthon rescue workers immediately transported the injured passengers to Thalang Hospital.

According to Capt Warawut Saensop of the Thalang Police, from the initial questioning of the minivan driver, Rattanasak Sangkhao, the van had suffered ABS problems for some time, which he had reported to his employers, however, nothing had been done to fix the problem.


This he believes is what caused the accident.

Names of the injured: Fan Fengnian, Haoyu Zhu, Li Han, Wen Yan Zhu, Xueqi Fan, Qing Yu Zhu, Huang Yaping, Yang Li, Zhi Tong Li, and Jing Ru Liu.

Wow, no slippery road/ a pole but ABS system not in good order?
Than you commit a crime to drive tourist passengers with such a Van
And the thai employers are also full responsible

I hope China officials and Chinese insurances get into this with full force!
I suggested last week a special excuse/wai vice-governor to visit hospitals, is such already realized? Or not yet a budget?
